Howard College opened it doors in Marion, Alabama, 
to young men only, in 1842. The new University wai 
chartered by the Baptist Denomination. The school 
was named for John Howard, a great English lib\ 
erator and reformer of the nineteenth century. Samue\ 
Sterling was chosen to be the first President of Howl 
ard College. The first years enrollment grew fron 
nine students to thirty-one during the course of thi 
year. In 1848, Howard graduated it first class 6] 
seven members. 

On an October night in 1854 misfortune struck, as the 
campus burned. A janitor heroicly warned the boys in

way to success. In 1853, the college life of the boys was 
interrupted by the Civil War. For a while the campus 
was used for hospitalization of Confederate Soldiers. 
In 1865 Federal troops took over the school property 
and one of the dormatories was used for freed slaves. 
After the war the campus was in total distruction and 
only a handful of students returned. 
In 1887, the collge was moved from Marion to Bir- 
mingham onto the Eastlake Campus. The first build- 
ings were a dormatory and a "Mess Hall. " The "Old 
Main" was completed in 1891 and soon afterwards 
four dormitories were constructed. And buildings 
such as the science hall and Causey Gymnasium were 
built. In 1913 Howard College opened it doors to

What would contain five 
lively nights of fun and fel- 
lowship with fellow Samford 
students without the stress of 
classes and tests except Wel- 
come Back '89? 

Students began the Wel- 
come Back festivities with the 
annual "Dinner on the Dirt" 
in front of Vail. Later that 
evening the enthusiam 
reached its peak at Sloss Fur- 
nace where the student body 
was in perfect step to the beat 
of the music presented by Mu- 
sic Techiques. 

Although classes began on 
Wednesday, the excitement 
continued to build. Thursday 
night the students gathered 

in LSW for a spectactular in- 
spirational mime and music 
presentation by Berky and 
Cotton. Following the con- 
cert, the action resumed with 
a Pep Rally held in the sta- 
dium as Coach Bowden set 
the spirit for another year of 
Bulldog football. 

Each organization dis- 
played its spirit by wearing 
jerseys, T-shirts, or school 
colors. Consequenty, the week 
had to come to a close, but the 
students joined together one 
more time immediately fol- 
lowing the game in the 
Wright Center Concert Hall 
to watch "The Naked Gun."

Samford students found 
Homecoming '89 to be a true 
"Blast From the Past." The 
students and alumni partic- 
ipation throughout the week 
exhibited the true Samford 

An alumni convocation as 
well as Homecoming nomina- 
tions of the Queen and her 
court, blasted off the week. 
On Tuesday night everyone 
was more than happy to gath- 
er in the Caffor an enjoyable 
meal of steak and shrimp. Af- 
terwards, students enjoyed 
the free concert by Chevy Six 
in Sherman Circle. The out- 
door presentation of the mov- 
ie "Beaches" on Wednesday 
night left most students freez- 
ing and teary-eyed. Perform- 

ing an amazing Magic Show 
on Thursday night, David 
Garrand, a 1975 graduate, 
dazzled the audience. 

Red and Blue Day began 
Homecoming Weekend, a 
weekend filled with spirit 
and full of activities. Follow- 
ing dinner on the Dirt was 
the Homecoming Pep Rally, 
during which the football 
team and Homecoming Court 
were presented. 

The pep rally was led by 
the Samford cheerleaders 
and the Samford Band. Then 
it was off to the Quad to work 
on the floats. As usual each 
organization was responsible 
for a Homecoming float, but 
this year was the first time 
that the floats were built and

After finishing the floats, 
everyone kept the party alive 
with pizza and rolling the 
campus. It was a blast! 

Actual Homecoming day 
rolled around on Saturday 
with the game beginning at 
1:00. Half-time activities in- 
cluded the presentation of 
the Homecoming Court and 
the naming of the homecom- 
ing Queen and her escort. 
Representatives on the Home- 
coming court were Rachel 
Corts, Karen Fairchild,Jorja 
Hollowell, Phil Chambers, 
David Corts and Stephen 
Lamb from the Senior class; 
Mary Prugh and Justin Rudd 

from the Junior class; Trecia

the Sophomore class; and 
Celeste Fowler and Tray Lov- 
vorn from the Freshman 

President and Mrs. Corts 
had the honor of crowning 
Rachel Corts, escorted by 
Phil Chambers, as 1989-90 
Homecoming Queen. 

The game was followed by 
an alumni tea and later that 
night a buffet and dance were 
held at The Club. Music by 
the "Extras" and a dazzling 
night view of the city was a 
perfect end for an activity- 
filled week. Celeste Fowler

The annual "Rolling of the Trees" in front of the Library. 


The Step Sing production that start- 
ed on the steps of the administration 
building on the Old East Lake Cam- 
pus in 1951, resumed its traditional 
climax of zeal again this spring 
among the student body. 

Step Sing 1990 reached heights it 
has never seen in Step Sing history 
due to the addition of two new or- 
ganizations — The Baptist Student 
Union Choir and Alpha Psi Omega 
— nearly a third of the student body 
participating, and two sold out per- 

With seventeen different groups 
participating, the Step Sing commit- 
tee motivated the groups by offering 
incentives. They presented trophies 
and cask awards totalling more than 
$3,600. Prizes were awarded to first, 
second, and third place winners in 
each of the Men's, Women's, and 
Mixed Divisions. Also, the overall di- 

vision winner received the coveted 
"Sweepstakes" award. 

Masters of Ceremony for the 1990 
Step Sing tradition were Linda 
Yoars and Tony Hale. Linda is a 
senior elementary and early child- 
hood education major, and Tony is a 
journalism/mass communication 
major. The informative and spon- 
taneous entertainment they contrib- 
uted added vigor to the audience as 
the night progressed. 

The theme of the production was 
"On with the Show." The set was 
decorated with replica paintings 
and drawings by Al Hirshchfeld. 
The decor and theme pulled the spir- 
it of Step Sing together. 

As the stage was set and the au- 
dience seated, the seventeen organ- 
izations anxiously awaited for the 
curtain to rise so they could get "On 

With The Show. " Cindy Keen

For those who were in 
Step Sing, there was no 
such thing as sleep for 
about two weeks. Each or- 
ganization was allowed 
forty hours of practice, 
which was spread over a 
two-week period. On the 
average, each group prac- 
ticed from about 6 p.m. to 
9 p.m. on weekdays and 
from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on 
Saturdays. This left many 
participants tired and ir- 
ritable and, needless to 
say, behind in their class- 

When asked what Step 
Sing practice was like, 
Freshman Hope Sumerall 

explained, "Step Sing was 
the utmost priority. Prac- 
tice even came before 
homework for those two 
weeks. " 

Step Sing practices not 
only brought perfection to 
the shows, but it also al- 
lowed new friendships to 
evolve and old ones to be 

Junior Michele Brown 
said, "I don't believe there 
is a better time to get to 
know people than during 
those two weeks. It brings 
the school closer together, 
even with the competition. 
It gives us something to be 

prOUd. " Ann Redman

Most universities have a trademark or a long stand- 
ing tradition. Step Sing is one such tradition at 
Samford. Every year students spend hours in practice 
for their moment in the spotlight. 

Step Sing started on the steps of the administration 
building on the East Lake campus in 1951. When the 
school moved to its present location in 1958, Step 
Sing was held in Seibert Gymnasium. It was held in 
the Leslie S. Wright Fine Arts Center for the first time 
in 1979. 

Margaret Sizemore Douglass was the founder of 
Step Sing. She organized the event so the students 
would have something to do on the weekends. It was 
originally held at the end of "Rat Week" which was a 
combination of freshman initiation and Sadie Haw- 
kins type activities. 

When Step Sing began, the groups did a few steps or 
hand movements and sang songs. Today, competing 
groups sing more songs, have elaborate costumes, use 
props, and perform six minutes of precise choreog- 
raphy. A student band has also been created to play 
the music for each group's show. 

Today each group has its own director choreog- 
rapher and arranger. In years past, one person di- 
rected all the groups. In 1964, a student committee 

was organized to plan Step Sing. A similar committei 
has existed each year since. In 1965, the show begat 
being presented on two nights. 

Guidelines have also been imposed over the years tt 
help make the competition fair and fun for all. 

The Sweepstakes Trophy has been the coveted prize 
for Step Sing participants for many years. It wasn't 
until recently that cash prizes were awarded to win< 
ning groups. 

The Student Government Association Scholarship? 
have also been created to honor two students from the" 
freshman, sophomore, and junior classes who show 
excellence in their academic, social and spiritual 
lives. Part of the proceeds from Step Sing go toward 
these scholarships. 

In spite of the many changes, Step Sing has sur- 
vived and many alumni still support the event as ti 
brings back memories of their college days. 

Step Sing 1990 saw its own changes in history a 
more groups participated than ever befor' and tht 
concert hall was sold out both nights. Celebrating its 
39th year, Step Sing 1990 continued to add to the 
long tradition of excellence and pride in Samford.

"Help! I've fallen, and I can't 
get up!" Don't worry "The Doc- 
tors" of BSU Choir are ready to 
take on any kind of "Emergency." 
Making their first appearance in 
Step Sing, "The Great Physi- 
cians" woed us with their melody 
and surprised us with their "Like 
a Surgeon." Walking away with 
first place in the Mixed Division 
competition, the members of BSU 
Choir left the audience with a 
"Bad Case of Loving You." 

Wanting to "Reach Out and 
Touch Someone" the "Smooth 
Operators" of the Sophomore 
Class made sure that we "Didn't 
Lose Their Number." With "867- 
5309" the Sophomore Class "Just 
Called to Say I Love You." 

We "Heard it Through The 
Grapevine" that the Black Stu- 
dent Organization definitely 
"Had that Swing" with their ren- 
dition of "The Cotton Club Re- 
visited." No amount of "Stormy 
Weather" could hold the Black 

Student Organization down as 
they sang "God Bless the Child." 

Back through time is where the 
Ministerial Association took us as 
they explored the beginning of 
contemporary Christian music. 
Starting with the Chorale version 
of "We Praise Thee O God," the 
MA's were "Rapping" to get their 
message across. No matter how 
the rhythm goes, from jazz to 
country, the message is still the 
same. With their quick change 
setting, the MA's placed third in 
the Mixed Division. 

With the "Rhythm Of The 
Night," the Junior Class showed 
it had rhythm as they did the 
"Conga." Unable to stay still the 
"Fascinating Rhythm" of the 
Junior Class rocked the concert 
hall. "The Rhythm Got us All"

"The Sigs, the Sigs, the Sigs 
are on fire!" Yes, the brothers of 
Sigma Chi were definitely on fire 
when they won Sweepstakes! 
They fulfilled every boy's child- 
hood fantasy of being a fireman. 
From the sounds of Springsteen 
"I'm on Fire" to the acoustic 
rhythms of James Taylor with 
"Fire," the brothers of Sigma 
Chi left the stage blazing, and 
they definitely started the fire. 

The brothers of Sigma Nu 
challenged the audience to sit 
back in their bucket seats and 
put on the cruise control because 
they represented the men who 
work daily underneath the hood 
"Working for a Living." They 
were the "Greased Lightnin" 
mechanics! The brothers of Sig- 
ma Nu came from behind the 
wheel to accelerate and place 
second in the Men's Division. 

The "Innocent Men" of Lamb- 

da Chi Alpha became 
"Renegades" as they portrayed 
the most wanted men. They came 
from behind bars and working 
on license plates to "Shake 
Down" the audience. The men of 
Lambda Chi Alpha threw in 
their chains to place third in the 
Men 's Division. 

One of the most entertaining 
shows was performed by the 
brothers of Pi Kappa Alpha. 
They invited the audience to vi- 
sualize "Sitting on the Dock oj 
the Bay" and watching the white 
sand and the rolling waves. 
From the bathtub to the beaches

r T^he grande finale of Step 
-*• Sing was the most pro- 
fessional to date. It began 
with a cleaning lady, played 
by Sherri Rothermel, sweep- 
ing the stage and reminis- 
cing upon theater life. 

The curtain then lifted to 
display a colorful stage of 
one representative from each 
organization in his or her 
show's costume. The group 
performed "Give My Regards 
To Broadway," in the finest 
Step Sing tradition. 

The routine was chore- 
ographed by Julie Averett 
and the musical score was 
written by Bart McGeehon. 

Rothermel, who was also 

Step Sing Director, said this 
was the first time a grande 
finale like this had been 
done. She said the finale 
helped tie in the theme of 
Step Sing and made the show 
have a packaged, complete ef-

A cool Halloween night 
set the stage for the Campus 
Ministries Fall Carnival. 
This year's festivities had 
more groups participate 
than ever before and raised 
more than $2,000. 

Each year, organizations 
devise original ideas for 
booths. The money raised 
from the carnival helps 
send out summer missiona- 

Several groups partici- 
pated for the first time this 
year including; the Samford 
Sociological Association, 
the Fellowship of Christian 
Athletes, and Alpha Kappa 

The organization that 
raised the most money this 
year was Delta Omicron 
with its "Send them to Jail" 

The chairpersons of this 
years carnival were junior 
Mandy Newman and soph- 
omore Kristy Horton, who 
served as Summer Missions 

Newman said, "This year 
we emphasized that people 
attend and bring money; 
and they did. I thought 
everything went smoothly. 
The carnival was a huge 
success. "

The Miss Samford Univer- 
sity Pageant, formerly the 
Miss Entre Nous Pageant, re- 
ceived national attention this 
year as its 1988 winner, Julie 
Coons, competed in the 1990 
Miss America Pageant. As 
Miss Alabama 1989, Coons 
emceed this year's Miss 
Samford pageant. You can 
imagine the excitement gen- 
erated in a room of twenty-six 
girls who were being given 
the same chance. 

The entire production was 
completely professional, a re- 
sult of the efforts of pageant 
director Beth Monroe and the 
pageant committee. The 
night began with entertain- 
ment by the Miss Alabama 
Revue, in which Julie Coons 

Silver and sequins then pa- 
raded around the stage as the 
twenty-six girls introduced 
themselves and their spon- 
sors. The top ten finalists 
were then announced. As they 
went backstage to prepare for 
the swimsuit competition, 
which was a new addition to 
this year's pageant, Sonya 
Phillips, Miss Entre Nous 
1989, gave her rendition of 
"Via Dolorosa." 

The pageant continued 
with the swimsuit and talent 
competitions. The talents in- 
cluded vocal selections, a pi- 
ano piece and ballet. 

Paige Sutton, a freshman 
sponsored by Phi Mu, was 
chosen winner of the swimsuit 
competition, while Teri

Samford Debate Coach Wil- 
liam Lee Slagle has confessed to 
the murder of Rex Bartley 
Copeland, said Shelby County 
Sheriff Buddy Glasgow. 

In a letter received by the 
Shelby County Sheriffs Depart- 
ment, Slagle admitted his guilt 
in the Sept. 21 murder of 20- 
year-old Copeland. The letter of 
confession, received yesterday, 
was postmarked in Nashville, 
Tenn., but was not released to 
the media. 

The sheriffs department con- 
tacted Slagle last Thursday, but 
Slagle "evaded the investiga- 
tors," and failed to appear for 
questioning, said Glasgow.

Associate Editor 

The Samford community has 
been stunned by news of a war- 
rant issued for the arrest of 
William L. Slagle and his con- 
fession to the murder of Rex 

Copeland, a junior debater and 
Sigma Chi brother, was found 
dead in his apartment Friday, 
Sept. 22. 

Sigma Chi President David 
Corts said, "Sigma Chi fully 
supports the investigation and 
hopes the person or persons who 
committed thecrime will quickly 
be brought to justice." 

Confusion, anger and shock 
were expressed by other Sigma 
Chi brothers. Steve Dillard, a 
sophomore Sigma Chi, said, 


from him. We left messages, but 
got no response," Glasgow said. 
"He could be anywhere." 

"Since then, we've put out a 
nationwide bulletin on him," 
said Glasgow. 


A warrant for Slagle's arrest 
was issued by the Shelby County 
Sheriffs Department yesterday 
morning but his whereabouts 
are still unknown.

Students who did not know 

Copelandwere equally shocked. 

Freshman Jennifer Davis said. 

"I'm angry and it's hard for me

"It's like a wild fantasy. It's scary 
that something like this could

Sophomore Sherri Rothermel 
said, "The healing process was 
just beginning and now this has

Junior Sean Flynt said, "I 
would hesitate to convict a man

During the spring se- 
mester — after spring 
break, just as spring fever 
is about to set in and when 
students least expect it — 
SPRING FLING sets in! 

What is SPRING 
FLING you may ask???? 

Spring Fling is when the 
students and organiza- 
tions go crazy and compe- 
tition is awesome between 
students as well as between 
campus organizations. 
Spring Fling is a time 
filled with activities that 
are fun and exciting!! 

You may ask who is in 
charge of this SPRING

Lauren Fields. Lauren 
works with her committee 
to organize the many ac- 
tivities of this special 

The highlight of Spring 
Fling was on Thursday 
night when the biggest 
band bash ever was held 
on this campus. The field- 
house was swinging with 
the music of such great 
bands as Roots Posse, The 
Garden Party, The Under- 
tow and 4th Balloon. Also, 
to add a thrill to the eve- 
ning, there was a special 
guest host present and it

The competitive sports

which was very amusing. 

And last, but not least, 
the DREADED Dating 
Game was held. Students 
were made into bachelors 
and bachelorettes and 
were humiliated in front of 
all their friends. Sounds 

like fun, huh?? It definite-

no one will want to miss 
next year.

"Hanging of the Green" is Samford's 
annual Christmas celebration which 
tells of the unique traditions and sym- 
hols of Christmas. The lighting of the 
advent wreath, the hanging of the 
greens, the first Christmas tree, and 
the lighting of candles are explained 
by Senior Honorees, "Hanging of the 
Green" is a special ceremony for all 
who attended. 

Lighting of the Chrismon Tree 

Each year University families make customized chris-

On May 20, the Class of 1990 wrote 
a new page in the history of Samford 
University as it set a precinct its de- 
cision to hold graduation off campus. 
Birmingham-Jefferson Civic Center 
Colosseum was chosen to replace the 
traditional Leslie S. Wright Audito- 
rium to accommodate the expected 
record attendance. Friends and fam- 
ily members, expected to number over 
5,000, attended the ceremony to ac- 
knowledge the achievement of the 
more than 900 graduates from thirty 
states and seven foreign countries. 

Giving the address on this special 
occasion was ABC Evening News' for- 
mer Co-anchor, Howard K. Smith. 
With his great wealth of resources 

"The world went 
off the track in 
1914 at the start 
of the first World 
War, and now it is 
back on track in 
the year of your 

and past experiences, Smith gives 
new life to the pages of Twentieth 
Century History. Reflecting upon the 
recent democratic movements in Eu- 
rope, he stated, "The world went off 
the track in 1914 at the start of the 
first World War, and now it is back 
on track in the year of your grad- 
uation." Smith spoke with a renewed 
hope concerning the future direction 
of the world for which this gradu- 
ating class will be responsible. The 
graduates accept this challenge as 
they step forward into the pages of 
the future. 


President Corti congratulate! 
James Bodie as he presents 
him the long awaited dxplo 

Even though the Birmingham-Jefferson 
Civic Center Colosseum is unable to 
match the beauty found at the Leslie S. 
Wright Auditorium, all friends and 
family members are able to participate 
in the graduation ceremony.

The Howard Rowing Club on the Eat/lake Campus. 




Samford is definitely "up and 
coming" since the return to in- 
tercollegiate football in 1984. In 
the five years since, Samford has 
vaulted two levels into Division 1- 
AA scholarship football. 

Long before the opening game 
against Jacksonville Stale, the 
Bulldogs began practice. Even 
with the injury of Brian Jones, the 
team's wide receiver, and Andy 
Williams, the number three cent- 
er, the Bulldog Spirit could not be 

The Jacksonville State game 
proved to be unforgettable. For 
the first time since 1973, Samford 
played at night. The excitement of 
this game resulted in a record at- 
tendance of 10,136 screaming 

Nevertheless, the Bulldog suf- 
fered a disappointing loss (19-9) 
to Jax State. The Bulldogs re- 
gained their composure for the 
game with McNeese State. Once 
again Samford's high expecta- 
tions weren't rewarded. Samford 
fell short by a score of 49-14. 

Not willing to let a second loss 
discourage the team, the Bulldogs 
worked diligently to build up 
their weaknesses. The extra work 
paid off as they met Tennessee 
Tech. Once again, the Bulldogs 
started slowly in the first Quarter 

with only 18 yards rushing 
against the Golden Eagles's 102. 
Even with the odds against them, 
Samford refused to be beaten. 
During the second quarter, Jones 
completed to J.C. Roper for 10 
yards and Ted Darby carried 
through with a 12-yard comple- 
tion to Steve Miles scoring for 
Samford. The Bulldogs outgained 
Tennessee Tech with 160 yards 
rushing to 67 yards. This put the 
Bulldogs within two points of the 
Golden Eagles. 

With the .start of the second 
half, Tennessee Tech scored, wid- 
ening the gap to 23-13. Showing 
pure determination, Samford 
pushed with Darby passing for 80 
yards in 6 plays. Donnie Rory cut 
Tech's the lead with a final 3- 
yard plunge to make the TD. Ad- 
ding the extra point attempt by 
O'Neal, the score was 23-20. The 
winning touchdown resulted from 
an 8-play drive of 64 yards with 
O'Neal adding the PAT. Samford 
claimed its first WIN of the season 
with the final score 27-23. 

After beating Tennessee Tech 
nothing seemed to be able to hold 
the Bulldogs back until tragedy 
struck. On the walk back to the 
dorms after practice, Freshman 
Mark Jones passed out and died. 
With great sadness, the Bulldogs

Senior Lew Sample, of- 
fensive center, has seen 
Samford's football pro- 
gram progress from Divi- 
sion III to Division 1-AA. 
"The players are more tal- 
ented, and the growth of 
the program is phenome- 
nal," Sample says. The 
team's improvement is due 
in part to the encourage- 
ment from Coach Bowden 
over the past four years. 
"Coach Bowden has shown 
his dedication to the team. 
The realization of this 
commitment has led to 
making the team more 

committed," Sample says. 
After last year's 5-6 rec- 
ord, Sample expected a 
winning season. "We did 
not win all the games, but 
we did make Samford 
known. " Samford's strong- 
point, according to Sam- 
ple, is the number of good 
talented young players 
who hold a bright future 
for the team. "With the 
combination of Coach 
Bowden' s desire and the 
talent of the players, 
Samford's football pro- 
gram is going nowhere but 

had to try to regain team spirit to play Livingston. 

Just as Samford's confidence began to rise, the 
Tigers's defense rose. 

With the discouraging 35-28 loss to Livingston, 
the Bulldogs prepared to face Morehead State. Not 
being able to overcome Morehead State, Samford 
loses 35-29. 

Despite the loss, the Bulldogs regrouped and 
prepared for the Homecoming game against West 
Georgia. After a scoreless first quarter, the Bull- 
dogs took the lead in 13 plays. With the Bulldoogs 
holding West Georgia, the Braves had to rely on a 
47-yard field goal which made the score 7-3. 

Samford set the tone for the remainder of the 

game with Dave Primus returning the kickoff 89 
yards. Jones made it 14-3 only two plays later. West 
Georgia seemed to be making a comeback only to 
have Billy Robison intercept at the 6 yardline. 
After this, Samford broke the Braves with a 15- 
play, 94-yard drive that ended in a 9-yard touch- 
down run by Rory. Widening the lead, Theron 
Owens bolted 46 yards for the final touchdown 
ending the game at 28-3. 

Despite the win against West Georgia, Samford 
looked about as bad on offense as they had all year, 
said Coach Bowden after letting Tennessee-Martin 
score two in the first quarter. This was not the case 
during the second quarter though. With a return of

Adding to the excitement, Ernest Barbee re- 
ed a Pacer fumble enabling the Bulldogs to 
\e score at 17-17 in just two more plays, 
claiming the lead, the Pacers capped a 6-play 
rive making the score 24-17. Owens with a 1-yard 

mg the push forward, Primus scored to win for 
<te Bulldogs 37-27. 

Next in Samford's path was Georgia Southern, 
he national champions in 1985 and 1986. Know- 
ig that Georigia Southern would be nearly im- 
ossible to beat, Coach Bowden worked with the 

team for two weeks. Samford made its biggest play, 
of the day with Primus returning a kickoff 99 yards 
for Samford's only touchdown. But the final score 
was 52-7 and Samford's record dropped to 3-5. 

After being blown away by Georgia Southern, 
the Bulldogs traveled to Charleston, S.C., to take 
on The Citadel. "We wanted to play so well in that 

embarressed." Coach Bowden said, "Then the 
Bulldog's met a fired-up team on its home field. 
The Citadel beat the Bulldogs 35-16. 

Not allowing the five-game losing streak to tar- 
nish their Bulldog Spirit, Samford traveled to Lou- 
isiana to meet Nicholls State. "The defense prob- 



nu s 

ably had its best outing, giving up just one touchdown," said 
Bowden. "We finally got cranked up on offense when we figured out 
we could play with these guys." Still falling short, Samford was 
defeated by Nicholls State 23-17. 

Trying to put the loss to Nicholls State behind them, the Bulldogs 
prepared for their final game of the season against East Tennessee. 
Midway through the first quarter, the Buccanners jumped ahead 7- 
0, but Jones' tied it up 7-7 with a late first-quarter touchdown. With 
only 43 second before halftime, Jones came back with his second 
touchdown and O'Neal added the extra point putting Samford 
ahead 14-7. But as time expired, the Buccanneers closed the gap 14- 
10 with a 33-yard field goal. 

Early in the third quarter, 
Samford extended its lead to 17- 
10 with O'Neal's 23-yard field 
goal. The Buccanneers were not 

in the third quarter, the Buc 
quarterback completed a 3-yard I ■" i 
pass to tie the game 17-17. 

The Bulldogs ruled the final 15 
minutes with Jones adding two 
touchdowns and James with a 22- 
yard run. O'Neal on the PAT 
made the score 38-17. With a con- 
solation touchdown in the last 26 
seconds of the game, the Buccan- 
neers brought the score to 38-23. 
Samford wins the last game of the 

"That's the way we wanted to 
end the season (with a win)," said 
Coach Bowden. "I told the team 
after the game that it wasn't the 
end of the year, but the beginning 
of things to come. " As for the fu- 
ture, Bowden says, "We need to 
recruit players that can help our 
program. Right now we can play 
with anybody in the lower level of 
Division 1-AA, but we're going to 
move up in the next couple of 
years to where we're playing for 
the championship."

Have you ever wondered who runs onto the field when a football 
player is injured or who provides the player with water during a time 
out? Well, it isn't the "waterboy," but rather a vital member of the 
sports medicine team, the athletic trainer. Samford University's 
strong administrative support has allowed the athletic training pro- 
gram to gain regional as well as national recognition. 

In the summer of 1988, Samford's athletic training program be- 
came the first National Athletic Trainer's Association approved ath- 
letic training education program in Alabama, and only the fourth in 
the Southeast. 

Since the main goal of the athletic training program is to prepare 
people to go out into the athletic world with the knowledge to better 
care for the athlete, the athlete becomes the winner. They win not only 
because they return to activity sooner but because they may live a 
healthier, more productive life because of the knowledge of a well- 
trained sports medicine professional — the athletic trainer.

After a weak beginning, loosing eleven of their 
first twelve games, Head Coach Ed McLean 's Bull- 
dogs continued to fight and improved their record 
to a 6-22 final season with four wins and fourteen 
loses in conference. After three seasons at 
Samford, Coach McLean is continously striving to 
improve the basketball program here at Samford. 

This season's outstanding players include Stan- 
ley Wormely, Tim Dolan, Kevy Mclnnis, and Ar- 
nold Hamilton each had field goal averages in 
double digits. The Trans America conference all- 
time leading shot blocker Stanley Wormely, is a 6' 
8" forward from Birmingham. Wormely was 
honored as the 1989-1990 Most Valuable Player. 
Tim Dolan, a 6' 8" center from New Orleans, 
averaged 10 rebounds and eleven points per 
game. Kevy Mclnnis, a 6' 1" guard from Lucedale, 
Mississippi, led the team as second highest scorer 
with twelve points per game. The Bulldog's high 
scorer was Arnold Hamilton. Hamilton, a 6' 2" 
guard from Fairfield, Alabama averaged over 
13.5 points per game. 

Even though the team is losing Stanley Worme- 
ly, Arnold Hamilton and part-time starter Bo 
Gamble, Coach McLean looks at the 1990-91 sea- 
son optimistically. "This is our best chance to win

Chants and cheers are all cheer- 
leaders do, right? Wrong. There 
was a lot more to being a cheer- 
leader than met the eye. 
For starters, there were the long 
endless hours of practice, the 
late nights making up new 
cheers, and the early mornings 
perfecting them. A large part of 
a cheerleader's summer was 
spent preparing for cheerlead- 
ing camp as well as the upcom- 
ing football season. 
Then came just plain oV exer- 
cise. Keeping in shape was a 
must, especially if stunts and 
pyramids were to be performed

Head Tennis Coach Jim Moortgat was not 
mistaken at all when he stated at the close of 
the 1988-89 season that he envisioned 
Samford's tennis team as a competitive force 
in the conference during the 1989-90 season. 
The lady bulldogs certainly made his dreams 
come true as they for the first time in 
Samford's tennis program won the New South 
Women's Athletic Conference title in Atlanta. 
They competed against seven other colleges 
and placed first in Conference with 69 points, 
followed by Stetson and Georgia State. Chan- 
dra Howard, a sophomore journalism major, 
was named Player of the Year at the con- 
ference tournament. 

"It was a great season and winning was the 
icing on the cake," coach Moortgat said. 
The men's team finished third in the Trans- 
American Athletic Conference Championship 
in Little Rock Arkansas. "The guys played as 
hard as they could but there were one or two 
points that just changed things in the match- 
es," Moortgat said. The men's team is lead by 
first seed Donovan September who is the first 
Samford player to hold a national ranking.

ences. The men's team placed sixth in the 
Trans America Athletic Conference with Ian 
Thompson being named to the All-Conference 
team. The Lady Bulldogs finished third in the 
New South Women's Athletic Conference. 
Both teams faced opponents such as Univer- 
sity of Alabama in Birmingham, University of 
Alabama, and Auburn.

Kim McLeod led the women's team

rest of the season was a success as 
well due to the supervision of head 
coach Bill McClure. In the final 
standings, the men's team placed

The Samford women's Softball 
team finished its season at 20-36, 
with players and coaches alike 
feeling a vast improvement over 
last year's 14-24 mark. 

"Just look at the teams we 
played this year. We beat teams 
like Michigan State and Furman, 
and only lost 3-0 to Oklahoma 
State," outfielder Jamie Meador 

The Lady Bulldogs placed sec- 
ond in the New South Women's 
Athletic Conference at Georgia 
State, losing to Georgia State in 
the championship game 2-0. Pam 
Abernathy, Jennifer Johnson and 
Beth Myatt were named to the All- 
conference first team, while Jen- 
nifer Smith was named to the sec- 
ond team. Head coach Rodney Dal- 
ton was named Coach of the Year. 

"In three years, we've moved 
from sixth to third to second, and 
the conference itself has improved 
with every year," Meador said. 
Dalton said, "The season went as 
we wanted it to go. We peaked at 
the right time. We had our bumpy 
spots early in the year, but we were 

ready for the conference." Pam

Dalton said, "The Southern Invi-

ton said. "I thought our pitching this 
year was the key to our success. Our 
pitching was solid, and the best thing 
we had going for us was that we had 
two pitchers," he said. After a rough

Congratulations are in order for the Lady Bulldogs on 
their most successful season. The varsity volleyball team 
ended the season just before Thanksgiving break with an 
18-18 season record. 

Samford University finished fourth in the New South Wom- 
en's Athletic Conference Tournament and had several 
players honored as members of the All-tournament teams. 
They were under the leadership of head coach Beth Dalton, 
offensive coordinator Tien Lee and defensive coordinator 
Scott Utz. The team faced a tough schedule this year in- 
cluding Georgia State, Mississippi State, University of 
Alabama and the University of Alabama in Birmingham, 
as well as teams ranked high in Division I-AA, such as Troy 
State and Jacksonville State. The most exciting matches 
were Georgia State and Jacksonville State. Both matches 
went to five games and were close until the end. 
"I was really excited that we beat them, especially for the 
seniors because it was our first time to do so since the 
volleyball program began here at Samford," said Utz. 
"Looking back, I am especially proud of our win against 
Georgia State, the 1988 and 1989 conference champion." 
Around mid-season the ladies attended the Mississippi 
State Invitational Tournament. Samantha Huff, as setter, 
earned a position on the All-tournament Team. 
The conference tournament was held at Florida Inter- 
national University in Miami. The ladies came out strong 
and put away Stetson in a three-game match but later fell 
to this same team and became fourth in the tournament.

The Samford Bulldogs set the school rec- 
ord for wins in a season but still fell 
short in its goal for a winning season 
finishing at 25-28. The previous best 
was 23 wins during the 1984 season. 
However the Bulldogs did face their 
toughest schedule ever and did bring 
some outstanding individual perfor- 

Tour teams which received bids to the 
NCAA tournament were on the schedule, 
and the Bulldogs took victories over 
World Series participant Georgia 
Southern, conference champion Stetson 
and Southern Mississippi. 
The Bulldogs were 18-14 at one time, 
but a run-in with Georgia Southern in 
Statesboro that resulted in a sweep for 
the Eagles seemed to turn things the 
wrong way. The Bulldogs dropped two- 
of-three from Stetson losing their second 
one-run game to the Hatters. 
Samford finished winning four of their 
last seven and beating cross town rival 
Alabama-Birmingham 6-0 on the Blaz- 
ers home field and finishing the season 

with a win over Southern Mississippi. 
As far as individuals go Danny Reed 
and Chad Ott were the unmistakeable 
leaders this season. Both were named to 
the Trans America Athletic conference 
All-conference team. 
Reed, a junior, batted .345 and led the 
team in hits with 67, runs with 64 and 
RBTs with 39. Ott was one of the nations 
leaders in doubles with 23 for the season 
He led the team with a .365 batting 
average and stole 24 bases. 
Senior pitcher Don'l Dease came on 
with a strong finish shutting out UAB 
and defeating Southern Mississippi 4-3.

Fans. Players. Penalty Flags. What 
do these three things signify? To most 
people, it denotes the onset of another 
football season. To college students, it 
means the start of fall semester, and 
the beginning of intramural sports. 

The intramural sports program 
was designed to promote athletics 
within all students. Organizations 
such as fraternities, sororities and 
campus ministries got involved. It 
gave them a chance to make new 
friends and show off their talent at 
the same time. There seemed to be a 
sport that captured almost everyones 
individual taste. The activities in- 
cluded flag football, wallyball, vol- 
leyball, basketball and tennis. 

This year a new idea was imple- 
mented into the intramural football 
program. Instead of one-hand touch, 
the game would now be played with 
flags. The decision to change the for- 

"You go left. You go right. WOW! Who's 
that girl? And you go straight up the mid- 
dle." These were only a few of the whispers 
overheard in the Pike huddle as they 
planned their strategy against the Sigma

mat was made by the Assistant Athletic Director Rod Dal- 
ton, who also serves as the chairman of the intramural 
program. The reason for this program was to eliminate the 
amount of injuries occurring on the field. "The flags have 
been put there to prevent problems with aggressiveness. " 

The change also brought a new challenge to the game. 
Each player wears a belt around his waist that has two 
colored strips that are attached by velcro. The opposing 
player must get possession of that flag. It took a little more 
knack to grap a flag than it did just to touch someone. 

With the new flag football program put into play, the 
players would definitely sustain less injuries. The next 
problem to be solved was getting someone other than stu- 
dents to officiate the games.

Even with the new system, football will always be an aggressive sport between fraternities.

MONDAY AT 10:00 AM, 

Do you know where the students are? 
Most likely we're at Convo. It's 9:55 a.m. 
I'd better hurry or I'll be late for Convo. I 
really need to go today because I only have 
32 and this is my last year to make it to 64. 
I walk in the Chapel and frantically try to 
pick out a seat. All the seats in the balcony 
and in the back are full, so I have to sit up 
front. After taking my seat I start looking 
around. What do I see? A bunch of happy, 
chattery people who, like me, have to sit up 
front. Name, social security number, and 
status I put down on my Convo Card. I look 
to my right and see a guy who is frantically 
trying to finish up his math assignment 
before his 11:00 class. On my left a girl has 
already fallen asleep on her boyfriend's 

This is a pretty typical Monday, Wednes- 
day, and sometimes Friday morning at 
10:00 for many of us here at Samford. 
Sixty-four convo credits are required prior 
to graduation. In essence, convo is a time 
for relaxing and enjoying the enlightening 
words of the speaker, but if listening to 
speakers is not your idea of fun, there are 
plenty of other ways to reach sixty-four.

A unique group of students from all walks of campus life — 
using their indiviual talents, interests, and ministerial skills 
to help those around them — make up Campus Ministries. 
One of the most important goals we can have in our lives is to 
become all God intends for us to be. The many programs and 
ministries overseen by Campus Ministies give students op- 
portunities to reach this goal. 

When asked what Campus Ministries is, Ms. Virginia Brid- 
ges, Director of Campus Ministries, replied, "Campus Min- 
istries is not an organization, but works through organ- 
izations. Under the umbrella of Campus Ministries there are 
approximately thirty-two groups ranging from BSU Choir to 
the Inner City Mission Team. 

Each organization which is part of Campus Ministries is 
student led. The Executive Council of Campus Ministries is 
composed of twelve students who coordinate these groups. The 
Executive Council is chosen each spring for the following 

school year through an interview process. This team seeks U 
discover the needs of students on campus and the needs 
those in our area. Then they provide programs and ministrie 
to meet those needs. 

One such need is World Hunger. This year, Kristen Hanse 
was the executive member in charge of this ministry. Student 
raised and donated over three thousand dollars to this fun 
through collecting change in rice bowl banks, donating mone 
for an air-lift, and contributing one dollar to eat in the cafi 

Another need students have is the need to worship. Bet 
Rowell was the executive member in charge of this area. Som 
of the special worship services held include Hanging of Th 
Green, Covenant Worship, Outreach '90, and Thanksgivin 
and Easter Communion. 

As the following pages show, Campus Ministries is growin 
and learning by giving and loving. Andrea cant

As a member of Freshman Council it was a real blessing for 
me. I still wasn't quite sure what Freshman Council was when 
I signed up at Orientation last summer, but I found myself 
looking forward to every meeting as the school year 
progressed. I think Freshman Council encourages its members 
to really study the Bible and form their own opinions. Our 
group brought up and discussed several topics that I had 
come in contact with before, but I had not really given much 
thought to them. 

Hearing the beliefs and questions of others and having the 
opportunity to bring up my own questions about the Bible 

helped me focus more clearly on my understanding of it. 

Besides the spiritual growth I experienced this year, Fresh 
man Council was a great break from my studies. Many areas of 
our campus were represented in the council, so we were 
informed on what was going on around us. 

Furthermore, the fellowship we shared was special. We 
grew from a bunch of confused and overwhelmed freshman to 
a group of friends that listened to each other's ideas, prob- 
lems, and feelings and sought to support one another. That's a 
great thing to be a part of, especially when you're a freshman'

Discipleship and prayer are two vital parts in the growth of a 
Christian. This past year, Judd Hendrix and Laurel Ward were 
the executive members working with prayer groups. Some of the 
special prayer times they held included forming prayer partners 
at Vision '89, forming Operation World prayer groups to pray for 
world missions, holding weekend prayer chains to pray for 
Samford, organizing men's and women's prayer groups around 
campus, forming a prayer chain for the student-led revival, 
providing materials for students, and observing the National 
Day of Prayer. 

Discipleship groups are an outlet for a small group of students 
to meet together on a regular basis to promote a personal walk 
with God and to encourage one another through accountability, 
scripture-memory, in-depth Bible Study, sharing and prayer. It is 
not just another Bible study. It is one person investing his life in 
a few others in order to help them walk through the paths of life 
which they may have already encountered. It is learning from the 
lifestyle of another. 

Groups meet once a week for one or two hours. They often 
create such unity and love for one another that they become a 
primary source of spiritual growth and encouragement. Through 
discipleship, Christians are encouraged to apply II Timothy 2:2 
and take what they learn and "entrust (it) to faithful men, that 
they may be able to teach others also," thus having their own part 

in fulfilling the great commission. Christy Hines and Andrea Carter

In response to many students' concerns 
regarding the development of a positive 
self-esteem, this year's Executive Council 
planned 1990s Christian Emphasis Week 
around the theme "Authenticity." 

The services portrayed Jesus as the ex- 
ample of authenticity and showed students 
how they needed to be authentic themselves 
and be the person God created them to be. 

The week's services included outstand- 
ing speakers: Dr. Killinger, the Distin- 
guished Professor of Religion and Culture 
at Samford, Dr. Martin Bell of St. Francis 
ofAssisi Eposcopal Church, and dramatic 
artists Paul and Nicole Johnson and

Reaching Out To Troubled Youth 



How exactly does one minister to the people of the city? The 
answer is quite simple — with the love of God. 

"Urban Ministry, Inc." is in the business of serving God by 
serving people. The organization is located at 1229 Cotton 
Avenue, S.W. in West End. Their main conviction is to serve 
the people who are not stable spiritually, as well as fi- 
nancially. To meet the people's physical needs, the organ- 
ization provides financial services to those in severe need, 
renovation for decaying houses and buildings, a community 
kitchen, a tutorial program for children, a food bank, a 
clothes bank, a service network for medical help, and com- 
munity and economic development to enable people to help 

"Urban Ministry, Inc." works closely with "The New Com- 
munity Church" of West End. Together they strive to share the 
loving and sharing Gospel of Jesus Christ. In seeing that 
"Urban Ministry, Inc." has put action into the statement "I 
love you with the love of God," the people are very eager to 
hear the story of Jesus' love and His promise for everyone. 

Students from Samford have been involved as tutors in the 
tutoring program, and as workers in the RUSH Center 
(renovating decaying houses and buildings). Their volunteer 
efforts have done much in ministering to others, as well as in 
teaching themselves the value of serving others. God has 
commanded His children "to find those who are lost" and "to 
feed those who are hungry." "Urban Ministry, Inc." has set 
out to do just that. Andrea DeMarino

"THE VILLE CREW," Samford's inner 
city ministry team, has had a successful 
'89-'90. Every Saturday morning this 
group of twenty or more people goes to 
Loveman's Village to play games, have fun, 
and love little children so that they may 
learn about the love of Jesus Christ. 

The morning begins at the playground 
with fun and games. Next, favorite songs 
like "My God is so BIG" and "Funky 
Chicken" are sung. Afterwards, several 
group members share an action-packed sto- 
ry dealing with a Biblical principle. At the 
end of the morning, "The Ville Crew" and 
all the children huddle for a closing 

"The kids really miss us when we don't 
come to the park and we miss them when we 
are unable to go," explains one of "The 
Ville Crew." 

On Tuesday mornings at 7:30 "The Ville 
Crew" gathers again in the student center 
T.V. lounge to pray for the ministry. 
Prayer has become an essential part of the 
ministry as participants have grown and 
sought a vision. "The Ville Crew" also 
sponsors two big events, Fall /Thanks- 
giving Carnival and Kid's Day.

Local missions, Spring Break, and Summer Missions: a 
taste of love through a touch of the world. 

Just as Isaiah answered God's call so many years ago, many 
students continue to answer it today. Through the numerous 
mission opportunities offered through Campus Ministries and 
its organizations, students are able to reach out and minister 
to others. 

From pushing an inner-city child on a swing and sharing 
God's love with him, to caroling to elderly shut-ins; from 
telling a North Carolina Indian about Jesus to witnessing to a 
New Orleans street person; from helping make a house livable 
for families around Birmingham, to construction work in the 
Soviet Union; students are touching our world with God's 

Working with local mission teams were Eric Spivey and 
Nicole Hinkle, and with Summer Missions were Mandy New- 
man, Kristi Whorton and Melissa Bailey. 

This spring Campus Ministries, along with the University 
of Alabama at Birmingham and Birmingham Southern, ini- 
tiated a campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity here in 
Birmingham. During Spring Break, Marta Tyree, Sam Fitch, 
Dr. and Mrs. Jon Clemmensen, and Ms. Ginny Bridges 
worked to clear a lot in Prattville for an eight-house com- 
munity. Their efforts were followed by the work of others to 
construct the homes. Andrea Carter

Reaching Out to College Students 



''Something old, something new; something borrowed, some- 
thing blue." Words not often used in the context of a mission 
trip, but participants in this year's New Orleans spring break 
mission trip experienced the words of this saying in more ways 
than one. 

Veterans of previous experiences at the Vieux Carre Baptist 
Church looked for signs of old acquaintances made in past years 
which they helped to acquaint the new participants with the new 
experiences of street ministry. Witnessing techniques and ex- 
periences borrowed from previous years helped to continue what 
has become a Samford tradition in the blue-light district of the 
Crescent City. 

These old words were also experienced in a wedding, which 
was perhaps the most unexpected ministry opportunity of this 
year's trip. An old pastor, a new baby, a bride in a borrowed 
dress, and a groom in a blue shirt participated in this unique 
ceremony. The groom was Tony Poche — one of the continuing 
bright spots of previous Samford mission trips. 

This young local became a Christian after being witnessed to 
by two Samford students four years ago. He has become an active 
member of the group in the ensuing years participating in street 
witnessing and lending his great talents in pantomine. Par- 
ticipants in this year's trip delighted in giving this opportunity 
to the young couple after learning that they were living together 
with their infant son without the benefits of a wedding because 
they were unable to afford the expense of such a ceremony. 

Mark Thomas and Kathy 
McRae stand up with Tony 
Poche and his bride as they 
take their wedding vows. 

Through the joy of seeing these two spirtually united and 
their son gain wedded parents, Samford students were able 
to participate in a unique way of sharing God's love. 

The joy and love experienced in this occurrence at the 
beginning of the week carried over into the rest of the week. 
Another person influenced by this love was William, an 
alcoholic encountered by some of the students on the wharf. 
After staying in the church talking to group members all 
night, William was taken to a drug rehabilitation center, 
where he was led to Christ. 

An integral part of each year's trip is when the par- 
ticipants use their talents in song, pantomine, drama, and 
clowning to share a Gospel message in concerts in Jackson 

"God really blessed the concerts by allowing us to over- 
come distractions from maintenance men bearing chain 
saws and harrassment from a policeman," Chris Davis, a 
leader on the trip commented. "The main point of the 
concerts is to allow Samford students to engage onlookers 
in conversation and to talk to them about Jesus. The crowds 
were larger than ever this year and more people made 
decisions as a result of the sharing by the students." 

Chris summed up the trip by saying, "Even though each 
time down to New Orleans is different in that different 
things happen, each time you are struck by the reality of the 
world and the simplicity of the Gospel. "

Summer Missions 

Each year, there are several activities 
planned to help send Samford students 
out as summer missionaries. Samford 
sends out more summer missionaries than 
any other university in America. This 
year, we sent students all over the United 
States and to several foreign countries. 
Fall Carnival, Birthday Cookies, and Ex- 
am Care packages are fund raisers for 
summer missions. Each spring, many stu- 
dents apply, go through an interview pro- 
cess and then are placed in positions pro- 
vided by the Home Missions Board and 
Foreign Mission Board. These summer ex- 
periences have impacted many lives and 
really provided perspectives for partici- 
pants. What a vmrthwhile way to invest a

"People Need The Lord", "Where Do You Hide Your Heart", 
and "We Did'nt Start The Fire". Many of the mimes are 
created by the members of the team. Many of the team's mem- 
bers have been involved in teaching other clown and mime 
groups. Some of the group participated with proffessional 
mime Doug Berkey at the "Mission 90" conference in Fort 
Worth, Texas. This student directed team meets weekly and is 
open to anyone willing to share God's message of salvation 
through this unique medium. The purpose of the group is 
simply to reflect what Christ, God's Son, is doing in each of 
their lives individually and as a group.

Regardless of the number present at the weekly meetings,^ ^ 
BSU provides an atmosphere of intimacy for all who at- 1 ^ 
tend. There's something unique in that aside from personal^ y, 
status on campus (or lack thereof), all are viewed as equals 
through the brotherhood of Christ. BSU is a place where 
everyone is someone, discipleship is realized, mistakes are 
forgiven and failures are forgotten. Junior Paul Short sees 
the attitude of BSU as "seriously following Christ's ex- m 
ample and taking it to heart." y 

// is hoped that the members of BSU accept each individual t „, ( 
— whoever they are — and through a mutual effort of love, ^ 
try to promote spiritual growth that is appropriate to their j^ 
particular need and context in life. Realizing the creative ] Kt 
attribute of God, individuality is not something to be ,i fJi 
scorned, rather it is viewed as a call to celebration. 5[ (

Each year at the semester opening convocation, the John H. 
Buchanan Award for Excellence in Classroom Teaching at 
Samford University is presented to a S.U. faculty member. The 
Buchanan Award which is decided by a poll of last spring's 
graduating seniors honors the late John H. Buchanan, a 
former pastor of Southside Baptist Church and a Samford 

This year's recipient was Dr. Shirley Schooley. Dr. Schooley 
is an assistant professor and associate dean in Samford's 
school of business. Her teaching obligations range from basic 

computer courses for freshmen to organizational behavior 
courses for graduate students. "I enjoy learning and want 
students to enjoy learning regardless of the topic," said Dr. 
Schooley. She also tries to serve as a role model for young 
women interested in business careers since so few models 
are available. 

Dr. Schooley is married to Neal Schooley, associate pas- 
tor at Dawson Memorial Baptist Church; they have three 
children. Before coming to Samford Dr. Schooley was a 
lecturer at the University of Maryland, European Division, 
Heidelberg, West Germany.

Not all of Samford's students 
live in campus housing or 
apartments off campus. Each se- 
mester thirty to forty Samford 
nursing students live in dorms 
connected to Montclair Hospi- 
tal. The dorm has four house 
mothers with one for each hour 
of the day. With rooms similar 
to Beeson Wooks, Montclair pro- 
vides a suite of two bedrooms 
with living couriers and private 

So that being away from cam- 
pus does not lead to isolation for 
these students, activities are 
provided. The Baptist Medical 
Center hosts four annual par- 
ties such a Back to School and 
End of School parties. Dorm 
parties, pizza parties, cookouts 
and patio parties also occur 
throughout the semester. 

The dorm at Montclair was 
constructed so that first and sec- 
ond year nursing students 
would be closer to their classes. 
The Hospital contains class- 
rooms, faculty offices, and a li- 
brary. The Montclair residence 
also have access and discounts 
at the pharmacy, the gift shop, 
and the cafeteria. For resi- 
dences who do attend some 
classes at Samford, Montclair 
provides two vans that carpool 
between the two locations. 
Samford's nursing students 
have never had life as good as it 
is now.

Computer Classrooms 

In order to keep up with tenology, Samford 
has incorporated the use of computer ter- 
minals in freshman English classes. This fall 
about 450 Samford freshman learned their 
English 101 skills in a computer lab. Com- 
puter screens and keyboards have replaced 
pens, paper and chalkboards as writing tools. 
According to David Roberts, director of the 
University writing programs, " These classes 
are not to teach students how to use com- 
puters, but to teach them to write." 

This new classroom is equipped with 25 
Macintosh SE computers and a LaserWriter 
printer. Over the fall semester 19 different 
sections of freshman English were conducted. 
Unlike past years, the students now spend 
their time writing, not taking notes and lis- 
tening to lecturers. 


Photographic Striven 

Dr. David Roberts teaches Frank McCravy and Scott Kauffman the basics of literary writing. 



In the spring of 1988, a group of Samford students began to 
explore the possibilities of a completely student owned and 
operated business. This would allow students of all fields to 
become involved in every stage of the business process; a 
dream of students helping students. The following fall, this 
dream became a reality with the establishment of the Samford 
Student Computer Corporation. Presently the SSCC is serving 
Samford and the community by offering instructional classes, 
by providing a computer store, and by providing students 
with practical experience. 

One component of the SSCC is AVIDO. This division pro- 
vides a computer training specialist to instruct Samford stu- 
dents, faculty and the public. Classes in WordPerfect, Lotus, 
dBased, and DOS are provided throughout each semester. 

The SSCC is dedicated to promoting computer literacy by 
providing computer equipment. Byte Back, a fully equipped 
computer store, offers Apple, IBM, Macintosh, and Zenith 
Data Systems at educational rates for Samford students. 
Sortware and computer supplies are also carried by Byte Back 
at comparatively low prices. A new development at SSCC is 
the incorporation of Desktop Publishing. This uses the newest 
computer technology to produce high quality printed ma- 
terials from newsletters to books. 

Since the SSCC is run exclusively by Samford students, 
management turnovers occur relatively often. For this reason, 
the Samford Student Computer Corporation needs enthu- 
siastic students to help further its goals.

The Department of Speech Communication 
and Theatre is housed in the Ben F. Harrison 
Theatre, one of the most advanced facilities in 
the state of Alabama. Computerized lighting, a 
revolving stage, a huge scene shop, adequate 
costuming quarters and a number of classrooms 
complement the liberal arts program which is 
part of the Howard College of Arts and Sciences. 
Dedicated to quality training in a Christian 
enviroment, our theatre is a warm and exu- 
berant group of creative people who calloborate 
toward a common goal: Theatre Excellence. 

The Faculty and students of the theatre be- 
lieve in a total theatre approach to the subject of 
drama at the undergraduate level, meaning we 
like for our majors to get a taste of acting, 
directing, designing, management, and all 
areas of technical work, from props and makeup 
to lighting and sound. We do a wide variety of 
historical and modern plays of varying styles 
and genres. On the average, the theatre 
produces about four mainstage and three or 
more student directed, experimental and out- 
reach shows each year. Advanced students are 
often allowed to direct or design in both of these 

Almost all of our plays are cast by open au- 
ditions, meaning that any student on campus 
has a chance to be in a show or to work backstage 
for a production. Freshman have a chance to be 
cast in all roles, just like upper classmates. Any 
student conjoin Masquers, a theatre club which 
is open to anyone interested in drama and fur- 
thering theatre on campus. 

An active theatre fraternity, Alpha Psi Ome- 
ga, create interesting projects all year long. To 
get in the fraternity, a student must accumulate 
the number of points (by working on produc- 
tions) designated by the national office. This 
last year, Alpha Psi Omega got a lot of attention 
with their Haunt-o-grams at Halloween and 
with their first ever entry into Step Sing. 

Birmingham offers many cultural opper- 
tunities, from a symphony orchestra and art 
museums to professional ballet, dance, opera 
and theatre companies. Our students often 
work on such professional performances, 
gaining valuable experience and sometimes a 
few extra dollars. This year many of our stu- 
dents were involved in the Birmaingham Op- 
era Theatre Production of THE DAUGHTER 
OF THE REGIMENT, held in Wright Con- 
cert Hall. 

Although the SCAT department is oriented 
toward a liberal arts approach to education, 
the theatre faculty requires a professional 
attitude toward the stage production, hold- 
ing foremost before themselves, the students, 
and the old maxim: "anything worth doing is 
worth doing well." The plays produced on 
our stages are intended for edification and 
entertainment of the community at large, as 
well as for University students, faculty, staff, 
and administration. 

Although a part of a Christian university, 
the faculty and students rarely feel confined 
in the choices of plays for our seasons. SUT 
does a wide variety of plays, including many 
classic pieces of historical significance — 
and feel that we are limited only by our own 


SU theatre opened its exciting 67th Sea- 
son October 19 through 24 with the dreamy 
45-year old classic THE GLASS MENAG- 
ERIE. Tennessee Williams' famous and 
touching drama was a hit on campus as 
well as appealing to a large number of 
high school students and community pa- 

by Harold Hunt, head of the Dept. of 
Speech Communication and Theatre. He 
called the Williams' masterpiece one of his 
favorite plays of all times. The play was 
chosen for the theatre season to give stu- 
dent actors a chance to work with the pithy 
themes and characters of Tennesse Wil- 
liams, as well as to introduce the audience 
to this important modern playwright. 

The scenery, lighting and costumes for 
what the playwright called this "memory 

piece" were designed by faculty members 
Barbara and Eric Olson. Mr. Olson stud- 
ied Jo Mielziner's original scenery designs 
New York City and our set was based heav- 
ily on the original play. Olson said, "When 
Mielziner designs a play, it is usually a 
definitive work. Subsezuent designers find 
it hard to create an entirely new concept 
without damaging the structure of the play 
itself. But, of course, our scenery had a 
somewhat different look and feel than the 
original. " 

Cast members for THE GLASS MENAG- 
ERIE were all theatre and speech majors. 
Paula Harmon played the mother. Lisa 
Carter created the character of the daugh- 
ter. Marty Johnson played the son and 
Scott Slate played Jim O'Conner the gen- 
tleman caller.

The moving and tragic TROJAN WOMEN by Eu- 
ripides was a tremendous challenge for the actors. 

Many critics regard the 2,405 year old Greek mas- 
terpiece as one of the most powerful antiwar plays ever 
written. It takes place the day after the Trojan horse has 
found its way inside the gates and spilled its Greek 
soldiers who kill all the men of Troy. The weeping 
widows of the fallen nation become the chorus of the 
tragedy and through their stories, the audience sees the 
suffering heaped upon the vanquished. 

Alumnus, Vic Fichtner directed the play. Stark and 
modern in tone, Fichtner said of this version, "I like the 
contemporary feel of the translation. I believe the au- 
diences related very well to it, maybe sometimes too well. 
I hope they will continue to think beyond this play to 
what is going on in other parts of the world today — 
though we did not play up the university of the piece as 
such. In fact, I found myself just getting caught up in the 
troubles of these specific women." 

The designers Barbara and Eric Olson created a very 
sparse, crumbling Troy which, with vivid lighting, sug- 
gested rather than depicted the ravaged city. Costumes 
for the production were quite authentic, lending an air 
of reality to the poetic piece. Associate director and 

chorus coach was Janet Keys, a voice and diction 

Heading the cast was Penny Edwards as Hecuba, 
Cassandra, her mad daughter was Lisa Carter. An- 
dromache was Julie Averett and her little boy As- 
tyanax was Seth Olson. 

The beautiful Helen was played by Laura Kilgore 
and her husband, Menelaus was Marty Johnson. 
Talthybius was Clayton Chandler foseidon was Alex 
Collum and Athena was Kristi Self. 

The chorus of Trojan women included Sherrie 
Rothermel, Barbara Dawson, Michelle Mohr, Angela 
Foster, Janet Peterson, Teresa Alvarado, Nancy John- 
son, Catherine Deason, and Christy Mason. Guards 
were Bart McGeehan, Brad Felton, Jeff Jackson, Dar- 
ren Dobbins, and Eric Spivey. 

Sherrie Rothermel, leader of the chorus women, 
said she was glad the show was chosen for the theatre 
season. "In all my three years here," Rothermel said, 
"I have never been as challenged in my work on stage 
or as pleased with the final results. " Though a dif- 
ficult piece to learn, THE TROJAN WOMEN pushed 
the students actors to new heights in their studies of 
the act of acting. 

The smoke rises as Marty Johnson speaks to the rest of the cast.

SU Theatre closed its 67th season with a delightful plaj ION

May 1. The production was really a series of tales b k 
Russian playwright, Anton Chekhov, which were re-worket nkct

Sorority Rush 

Phi Mu 

The decision of what sorority to pledge is 
one of the biggest decisions that you will make 
in college, because it detemines most of your 
friendships. ,9 

Sonnie Folds 

tHere they come! Here they come! Places everyone! Places! The Rushees begin to walk into a room of 
tiling faces and bright singing. The rushees are overwhelmed with girls talking and skits galore. The 
embers of the sorority try to relay to every rushee why she pledged or what her Sorority means to her. It's 
difficult to explain to someone outside your organization what's so special about your Sorority. But it never 
fails, the all-time, most-asked questions are: "What's your Major?" or "Where is your hometown?" 

The members of the sororities have been preparing for Rush for the past several months. The members 
are anxious and excited about Rush Week, the parties, and SQUEAL night! The parties are just as nerve- 
racking for the members as well as the Rushees. The members try to meet as many girls as possible and to 
remember all their names. 

The Rush parties begin with the first party which is Rotationals, the second day is the skit party, the 
third day is the Theme party and the fourth day is the preferential party. The last day is squeal day in 
which the Rushees become pledges. The new pledges and the members are all elated about the new 
friendships that will be an outcome of Rush. This is technically the real reason for Sorority Rush. The 
lasting friendships that are found when pledging a Sorority are SISTERLY! Donna Km

Not only was the year filled with 
fun activities, but rewarding ones 
as well. 


"PHI MU!! PHI MU!! PHI MU!!" As the pledges ran from the University Center, they were overwhelmed 
with the reception they received from the sisters of Phi Mu. On the night of squeal, the pledges were 
honored with a party thrown by the sisters. This party was only a sample of what was to follow. 

With fall semester came many activities for the sisters and pledges. There was the Pledge Bash, Fall 
Carnival, Mystery Masquerade and Derby Days. There was also the Band Bash which was a combined 
effort of Phi Mu, Chi Omega, Lambda Chi Alpha, and Pi Kappa Alpha. It was held at Howard's in the 
University Center. Music was provided by the band "The Extras." The last big event of fall was the 
Christmas "Mistletoe" Formal held at the Race Track. 

With spring semester came semi-formal. The Carnation Ball was held at the Blue Moon Dinner Theater. 
There was also the annual Step Sing competition. With the theme "Magic," the sisters and pledges of Phi 
Mu gave a captivating performance and won second place. 

Not only did the sisters of Phi Mu have a fun year, they also had a rewarding year. They raised money for 
the Children's Miracle Network with Project Hope and made care packages for needy babies. Even though 
their social calendar was filled, the sisters of Phi Mu always had time for others.

i Psi Chapter strove 

The open motto of Zeta 
to accomplish this year. 

On squeal night, the chapter greeted its 41 new pledges with a hot dog and coke stand on the quad. 
The sign hanging from the tent said, "Hot Dog I'm a ZTA!" 

Throughout the year, the chapter won awards in many campus activities. The members placed 1st in 
the 2X Derby Days for the 3rd year in a row. They also placed 1st in the Homecoming Float 
Competition, 2nd in the Homecoming Spirit Competition, 2nd in the Spring Fling Track and Field 
events and 1st place in Intramural basketball. The Zetas were honored for having the Most En- 
tertaining show in Step Sing and received the Panhellenic Award at the University Awards Day for 
being the sorority with the highest GPA. 

The Zetas also excelled as individuals. Senior Rachel Corts was voted Homecoming Queen and 
Junior Julie Coons served as Miss Alabama and participated in the Miss America Pageant. Three of 
the six Step Sing Scholarships given by SGA were won by Zetas and three of the six girls chosen to be 
senior honorees at hanging of the Green were Zetas. 

This year the Zetas had three mixers with fraternities from UAB. The chapter also held its sisterhood 
retreat in the mountains of Helen, Ga. Their formal was held for two nights — the first night at Roma 
Country Club, the second at the 4-H center in Wilsonville, Al. 

However, through all the fun, the Zetas realize that to truly be noble, one must serve others. 
Therefore, the members participated in many service activities. They hosted a Halloween party for the 
Association of Retarded citizens, sponsored a family at Christmas, painted rooms at Urban Ministries, 
sponsored a child for the Special Olympics, and participated in the Samford Phone-a-thon and the 
adopt-a-school program. Tractj sh,p*ni

Alpha Kappa Alpha 

Omicron Mu emphasizes sisterhood, service 
to the community and the enhancement of 

black women." 

iamjora University's Omicron Mu Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha was chartered on May 14, 1988. Being 
the first black Greek letter organization on campus, Omicron Mu emphasizes sisterhood, service to the 
community, and the enhancement of Black women. Founded by sixteen students at Howard University in 
1908, AKA is the first black sorority. 

Because of its richness in leadership, AKA had members who were leaders in every aspect of campus life. 
Individual achievements by the sisters of Omicron Mu were numerous this year. Since scholastic standards 
are striven for by AKAs, members were tapped into various honor societies, including Omicron Delta 
Kappa, Hypatia Women's Honor Society, and Pi Gamma Mu. 

Not only are academics stressed, but AKA sisters are encouraged to participate in every aspect of college 
life. As a result, Omicron Mu has members on the Arts fc? Sciences Advisory Board, Solo Flight, and a 
member as a disc jockey at WVSU. 

This year, Omicron Mu received the Savannah Jones Black History award at the AKA Regional 
Conference held in Knoxville, Tenn. This award is given to the undergraduate chapter in the Southeastern 
Region which best exemplifies the marvelousness of Black History in the community. 

Because AKA is a service sorority, Omicron Mu stressed this importance by donating clothing to 
Birmingham's Hanna Home and their time to Jimmie Hale Mission. In order to help the country combat 
drugs, AKA sponsored a drug seminar at Friendship Baptist Church with over 100 children participating. 

AKA participated in several campus events such as Fall Carnival, Greek Week, Homecoming, and Step 
Sing, with Shijuana Hudson winning the Step Sing Scholarship for the Junior Class. 

Although Omicron Mu has achieved scholastic and ethical standards and promoted unity and sis- 
terhood among themselves, the sisters of Alpha Kappa Alpha are striving for even more achievements and 
are planning their best year yet. shijuana Hudson

Alpha Delta Pi 

The law of natural selection— ONLY THE 

STONG SURVIVE. Thenu of pledge bash 



5 the year began, the anticipation and high expectations of the sisters of Alpha Delta Pi were qui 
certain and contagious during Rush week. After Alpha Delta Pi had pledged quota, it was obvious that the 
new pledge class had also caught onto the excitement. 

"The Law of Natural Selection — ONLY THE STRONG SURVIVE." — the theme for the 1989 ADPi 
Pledge Bash definitely held true for the entire chapter, for "Strong" they were throughout the year. Both 
the sisters and the pledges were involved in various activities, ranging from community service 
Homecoming and Step-Sing. 

Continuing to support their philanthropy, the Ronald McDonald House, the sisters of Alpha Delta Pi 
also chose to donate much of their time to other community services. Many were involved in a city-wide 
Hunger Clean-up, as well as spending afternoons tutoring children at local schools. 

The sorority was also represented during Homecoming. Building afloat and participating in the w 
long events were just a part of the week for these girls. Jorja Hollowell and Karen Fairchild (senio 
Trecia Smith (sophomore), and Celeste Fowler (freshman) served as Homecoming attendants of th 

Step-Sing once again proved to be thrilling for Alpha Delta Pi. Their theme "Talkin' Baseball" 
extremely entertaining, and they once again swept the Women's Division and claimed first place. 

Kappa Chapter also received very exciting news this year from the ADPi National Headquarters. Smtur 
Whitney Wheeler was chosen TCC (Travelling Collegiate Consultant) for Alpha Delta Pi. Kappa is exci 
for her and honored to have a Kappa TCC. 

Other ADPi activities included winning Spring Fling, participating in Greek Week and intramu 
sports (winning volleyball), hosting the Alpha Delta Pi Alabama State Days, serving as fraternity Lit t It- 
having the highest sorority pledge class grade point, and being involved in many other activities 
has most definitely been an exciting one for Alpha Delta Pi. ■ »/««• f—am

Being a member of Delta Zeta is 

like having thirty family members. 

The acceptance I've found here is 

like no other/' Martie Norman. 

Delta Ztta 

After a summer of Fun and Sun, the sisters of Delta Zeta were once again ready to start the school year. 
Not long after rush, Delta Zeta pledges were seen all around campus selling M & M'sfor their Pledge 
Project. Along with the M £s? M's, Delta Zeta's, sisters and pledges, could be found all over campus. 
Members held positions in various organizations such as Baptist Student Union, Campus Ministries, 
SOLO, and SGA Senators. 

Throughout the year, members of Delta Zeta conducted several fundraisers for their philanthropy, 
the Speech and Hearing Impaired. During the summer, all Delta Zeta's collected pocket change which 
they donated to their philanthropy. Other fundraisers involved selling dounuts on Saturdays and 
painting office complexes. AZ's were willing to get down and dirty to help raise funds. 

As a sorority, Delta Zeta participated in numerous campus activities. For Fall Carnival sisters of 
Delta Zeta could be found selling kisses, chocolate and real, in their "Kissing Booth." At Homecoming 
1989, the sisters participated in the float competition by "Bee-Bopping the Braves." This years Step 
Sing show, with the theme "Money" kept the AZ's singing about "Pennies From Heaven." Dela Zeta's 
were also found involved in the various activities surrounding Greek Week and Derby Days. 

At Province Weekend which was held at the Governor's House in Montgomery, Delta Zeta was 
recognized nationally for having the highest grade point average in their province. 

Loving to have a good time, Delta Zeta held various parties this past year beginning with "Squeal" 
and "Pledge Bash." Sisters and dates could also be found at the Hilton, for Semi-formal, and at the 
Winfry,for Formal. Wanting to start Spring Break '90 with a bang AZ partied "At the Beach" for 
their last party before Formal. 

Members of Delta Zeta were particularly proud of the individual achievements of three sisters. Kelly 
Harreld for being named 2X Derby Days Queen. Lanet Robins for winning various cross country track 
meets. And Angela Faulk for being named Salutatorian for the Class of 1990.

Sisterhood and riendship are two 
things a Chi On ega is never with- 

"We found the missing pieces!!" The sisters of Chi Omega had done exactly that with their new pledge 
class. The addition of new members to any organization usually requires a transition period for both the 
old and new members. This was not the case, however, with Chi Omega. The new pledges definitely 
belonged here. 

The sisters and pledges of Chi Omega started off fall semester right, with the Pledge Bash. It was a time 
of interaction between the girls and an opportunity to meet some guys as well. The next major event was 
Orange Crush, which was held in September at the Botanical Gardens. The girls also participated in other 
activities such as Fall Carnival and Derby Days. They finished off the semester with a beautiful semi- 
formal dance. 

Spring semester brought more fun and excitement for the girls. The pledges were initiated and were now 
new sisters. There was also Spring Fling and formal. And to top it off the sisters of Chi Omega placed third 
in the Step Sing competition. 

Being a sister of Chi Omega was more than just membership in a campus organization. It was a way of 
life that bred sisterhood and friendship.

Fraternity Rush 

"For a rushee, once he is accepted as a 
pledge, Ingris Week (Hell Week) takes place 
the following semester; but for a brother, 
hell week is at the beginning of the year." 

(Michael Oliver) 

What do Woodstock, Mash, Cavemen, and the Country Club all have in common? They are all apart of Fraternity 
Rush. Each fraternity has different themes to their various parties. Rush began on September lOtn and Bid day was 
on the 17th of September. 

Every fraternity has different parties on five nights. Each fraternity takes one night off during the week. Some of 
the rush parties are date parties and others are brothers night out. On brothers night out the brothers and rushees 
have a chance to become better acquainted. "Rush is not only a time for the brothers to meet the upcoming members 
of the fraternity, but it's also a time for the brothers to pull together and rekindle the bonds of brotherhood," Brent 
Glosstnger said. 

Fraternity Rush week can be a very exciting week but also a very stressful week. The stress is not only placed on the 
rushees but on the brothers as well. "As a brother you must always be on the lookout for the good rushee. 
Consequently, rush becomes a more stressful time as a brother than as a rushee," said Bill Nelson. "For a rushee, 
once he is accepted as a pledge, Ingris Week (hell week) takes place the following semester; but for a brother, "Hell 
Week" is at the beginning of the year," Michael Oliver said. 

All of the fraternities begin their week off with the Smokers and end their week with the Preferential party. 
Rushees get their first real taste of each fraternity during the Smokers. They spend about fifteen minutes at each 
fraternity house meeting the brothers. The preferential party is the last night before Bid night and the rushees 
usually know what fraternity they would like to pledge. 

The brothers of Pi Kappa Alpha began Rush 1989 with the preppy Yacht Club party on Monday night, the annual 
Woodstock party on Wednesday night, and brothers night out on Thursday night. Sigma Chi began its week with the 
Mash party on Monday night, Wai Ki Ki on Tuesday night, and brothers night out was on Thursday night. Sigma 
Nu began rush with the Country Club party on Monday night followed by brothers night out on Tuesday night, and 
Sig Beach on Wednesday night. Lambda Chi Alpha began its week with the Caveman party on Monday night, Toga 
party on Wednesday night and on Thursday night Lambda Chi Alpha had a band party. 

Fraternity rush is one of the most exciting times in an individual's college career. He first experiences rush from 
the standpoint of the rushee and when he becomes a brother he experiences it again from a different standpoint. 
Both views of rush are exciting. "Some people think it's fun, I think it is the Future of the Fraternity," Lee Manly 

Said. Donna Kern

'The secret of the brotherhood of

E. Gentry Gonzalez 

PI KAPPA ALPHA =pi 'kap-a al-fa= n.( of Greek orgin) 1: the quality or state of being brothers 2: 
FELLOWSHIP, ALLIANCE 3: an association for a particular purpose; also known as PIKE or IIKA. 

According to the Webster's Collegiate Dictionary this is the definition of Brotherhood, but the brothers 
of Pi Kappa Alpha believe it also defines PIKE. "I feel brotherhood symbolizes the bond between a group of 
guys who are always there for each other. Helping each other socially, academically, and in all other 
areas," said Burt Rushing. 

Brad Hudgens feels that Pike is "a spiritual bond held between a group of people that can never be 
broken. A bond that is held so tight that if a brother was in need of something, another brother would help, 
no matter what the circumstance." 

The brothers of Pi kappa Alpha started their year off with 19 pledges. They were very service oriented 
with projects that included working with the Children's Hospital for the mentally ill, they helped with the 
Inner City Mission program, and tutored children at Harding Elementary School. The brothers made 
funnel cakes for Fall Carnival to help finance Summer Missions. During Homecoming they made a time 
capsule to represent their theme "Back in Time. " For Step Sing their show was truly very entertaining with 
the theme of "Surfin USA." 

In the spring the brothers grew together and fellowshipped together at their brotherhood retreat. And 
last but not least the brothers held formal in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. 

Nance Bishop pledged Pike because "I saw a closeness of the brothers that I liked and because I felt 
comfortable with the standards that these guys set. I feel that I can uphold these standards. " 

"The Brothers of Pi Kappa Alpha displayed a bond and a pride in their fraternity that was 
unmatched," said Stephen Donald. 

George Parker summed up the Southern Gentleman's definition of "fraternity" by stating "Brotherhood 
is men sharing a single bond, striving together as a whole to achieve one purpose. IN SHORT BROTH-

T or the brothers of the Pi Chapter of Sigma Chi, 1989-90 was the year "the Sigs were on fire." 
Throughout the year, the chapter strove for excellence in all areas and was rewarded for its many efforts 
and contributions. 

The highlight of the year for the chapter was Step Sing. This year the brothers won first place in the 
men's division and the Sweepstakes Trophy for their sizzling performance of "Fire." 

In intramurals, the brothers placed 2nd in football, 1st in vollyball and 1st in basketball. In the fall, the 
brothers received the IFC Sportmanship Award. At the university Awards Day, the chapter received the 
1990 IFC All-Sports Trophy. 

The chapter also stressed excellence in academics and received the IFC Pledge Class Award and the IFC 
Chapter GPA Award. The chapter also established the Rex B. Copeland Scholarship Fund to memorialize 
the death of one of their brothers who died in the fall. 

The annual Sigma Chi Derby Days continued to be a popular and successful event. This year $340 was 
raised for the Cleo Wallace Center for Children and $660 was given to the charities of the sororities 
involved in the competition. More than $500 in canned goods was also collected and donated to tornado 
victims in Huntsville, Alabama. 

The Sigma Chi's, however, are not all work and no play. The brothers are known for having great parties 
and mixers. One of the year's favorite parties was held at Desoto Caverns. Their formal was held in Destin, 

For it's excellence in all areas, the Pi chapter was one out of 23 Sigma Chi chapters to received the 
coveted Peterson Award from the National Fraternity. The brothers also received the IFC Outstanding 
Fraternity Award at the university Awards Day. Tncey shtpard

" The Alpha Eta Chapter will strive 
to be the very best it can be.' 9 James 


On March 22, 1990, two national consultants from Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity were given permission to 
come to Samford University and re-establish the Alpha Eta Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi. The two consultants, 
Scott Gasparini and Alan Duesterhaus, worked with the administration and IFC to begin the process of re- 
establishment. Exactly one week later, on March 29, Scott and Alan began to rush young men for the 
fraternity. They put up Pi Kappa Phi tables and signs and also spread the news by word of mouth. Interest 
grew throughout the campus and soon eight gentlemen were inducted as associates into the fraternity. 

The number of men being inducted soon doubled and now there are 29 men in the fraternity. The Alpha 
Eta colony will not become a chapter until it receives its charter. Ideally, this will take place in the fall of 
1990. After receiving their charter, the men will be initiated as brothers and will become founding fathers 
of the Alpha Eta Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi. 

Pi Kappa Phi, a national fraternity, prides itself in its involvement in a program called PUSH, People 
Understanding the Severely Handicapped. Nationally, Pi Kappa Phi has raised over 1.1 million dollars 
for the PUSH program. PUSH is one of the many community services in which the Alpha Eta Chapter will 
be involved. As the men work hard to fulfill requirements for the national headquarters, their excitement 
about being part of the rejuvenation of the Alpha Eta Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi continues to grow. The 
Alpha Eta Chapter will strive to be the best it can be. jam*, smith

Lambda Chi Alpha — a measure 
of excellence let ding the way on 



For the brothers of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity, this year was definitely a time for dreams to come 

Rush was one of the high points in Lambda Chi's history. They started off the year receiving 32 new 
associates. This is the largest associate / pledge class in the IFC history. Then in the open rush period, they 
proceeded on to pick up 3 more associates. 

With this large associate class, Lambda Chi was able to participate in almost every organization on 
campus. Some such organizations were: varsity football, basketball, golf, A Capella Choir, Air Force 
ROTC, escort service, cheerleading, theatre, and discipleship. The fraternity participated in campus 
events such as Fall Carnival, Greek Week, Spring Fling, and Step Sing with a show that proved that they 
were the most "Wanted Men." 

Lambda Chi will always be a measure of excellence with its members leading the way on our campus. 
The executive council consisted of President- Al Baker, Vice President- Keith Sharp, Secretary- Justin 
Rudd, Treasurer- Stanley Peterson, Rush Chairman- Stephen Bonner, Fraternity Educator- Jamie Har- 
rell, Social Chairman- James Bodie, Ritualist- Brett Ballard, Educational Chairman- Scott Slate and 
Alumni Secretary- Richard Thompson. The philanthropy of Lambda Chi Alpha is Big Brothers and their 
colors are Purple, Gold, and Green. Richard Thompson

The Ministerial Association is a group of students wh 
have listened and responded to Jesus' command to go inl 
the world and minister to others. 

This year they served in many ways both in Birminghax 
and out of state. Here at home they spent time with battere 
women at the Bethany Home and served as volunteers at th 
Firehouse shelter for homeless men. One Saturday durin 
the Spring Semester, they constructed Russian Bibles to I 
sent to the Soviet Union to aid in mission work. 

During Spring Break they went to North Carolina an 
worked on an Indian reservation. In addition to doin 
backyard Bible clubs with the children they did son, 
construction work and cleared off land. 

For their summer mission trip, the MA's traveled i 
Montana for a week. Senior Jeff Cate said, "In a ten-dc

Air Force 

Located in the basement of Crawford Johnson, the Air Force 
ROTC program supplies the Air Force with top notch officers 
from the graduates of Samford, Birmingham Southern, UAB, 
and Montevallo. 

AFROTC cadets spend their first two years learning the 
organization of the Air Force, marching, and participating in 
various physical activities. In the last two years, cadets learn 
management principles and national policy in preparation 
for being commissioned Second Lieutenants. They will then go 
on to various career fields. Such career fields include law, 
medicine, nursing, intelligence, physical therapy, account- 
ing, engineering, and of course, aviation. 

This year there were about seventy cadets enrolled. Of this 
seventy, approximately twenty-five were from Samford. Some 
activities that the cadets participated in this year included a 
base visit to Florida and one to Colorado. This past summer's 
activities included field training for the sophomores and 
special assignments for the juniors. Two Samford cadets, Eric 
Hube and Rob Skelton received elite assignments at the Air 
Force Academy Survival School and the Royal Air Force 
Exchange Program, respectively. EncHube

Angel Flight is an honorary, professional, and educational 
service organization that works in conjunction with Arnold 
Air Society. Arnold Air Society benefits philanthropies, cam- 
puses and the community. 

For Angels there is no required military obligation what- 
soever, but the members enjoy helping with the recruiting 
efforts ofAFROTC. 

Although the majority of the girls come from Samford, 
Angel Flight also draws members from Birmingham Southern 
and UAB. Angel Flight now has approximately twenty-four 
active members. 

This year, Angel Flight, along with Arnold Air Society, was 
involved in numerous activities. The biggest project was host- 
ing Area Conclave 1990 here in Birmingham. Approximately 
200 Angels and Amies from all over Alabama and Mississippi 
met at ARCON to attend workshops, parties and a military 
awards banquet. 

Other activities include working for the March of Dimes 
every week and helping host Walk America out at Oak Moun- 
tain. Both groups also participated in car washes, parties and 
formats with the cadets, maintenance for Camp ASCAA, 
POW/MIA awareness promotions, and those lovely weekly 
meetings! suphame nhii

A familiar sight to most Samford 
students and faculty is small 
groups of people walking around 
campus with a popular Samford 
student. This well recognized 
Samford student is a member of the 
Student Recruitment team that 
provides various recruitment serv- 
ices for the university. 

The idea for Student Recruit- 
ment became a reality in the fall of 
1986. The team consisted of six or 
seven Samford students. Only four 
years later the team has grow to 
consist of forty students. In order 
to be eligible for the team, students 

must have a GPA of 2.5, exhibit 
leadership qualities, and be inter- 
viewed by the teams officers. 

Services provided by Student Re- 
cruitment consists of making 
phone calls to prospective stu- 
dents, working at events, acting as 
a host to on campus visitors, and 
coordinating and scheduling spe- 
cial events. Over the past year, Stu- 
dent Recruitment has planned and 
hosted Baptist Youth Day, Junior 
Sneak Preview, Senior Only Day, 
Boys Night Out, Campus Over- 
night, and Scholarship Day.

Alpha Psi Omega is an honorary society recognizing excellence, talent, 
and dedication in the work and in the art of the theatre. Initiation is 
allowed after a pledge period and after the student has accumulated 100 
or more points by acting in campus productions or working backstage, 
designing, directing or helping in the management area. Only about 20 
points can be collected on any one show and that is only for excellent 
work in a high capacity. 

The Tau Lambda chapter is advised by faculty members Barbara and 
Eric Olson. The officers are President, Kristi Self; Vice-President, Marty 
Johnson; Secretary, Julie Averett; and Treasurer, Sherrie Rothermel. 

This season's special projects included Haunto-grams at Halloween, 
Alpha Psi Omega's version of the scary singing telegram delivered by 
members in costume. The organization also entered, for the very first 
time, Step Sing in a non-competing category. Their opening "Actor's 
Life" segment got the annual event off to a rousing start. 

Alpha Psi Omega performs its opening act in the annual Step Sing.

New and 

New and Improved is the title to this song. Not only 
did the band received new marching uniforms but for 
the first time since Jon Remley, band director, has been 
teaching on campus they marched at halftime. They 
doubled in size this year as compared to years past. The 
band is a vital part of a campus and a football game. 
And they promote spirit amoung the students and the 
crowd. The band uses music to pep up the game and 
make the crowd stand on their feet. Second to the cheer- 
leaders, the band supports the team and supplies them 
with encouragement. Unlike the cheerleaders the band

does this through music. 

After marching season the band began to prepare for 
their Spring Concert. Their concert was held in April in 
Wrights Concert Hall. The Band played an ensemble of 
Jazz hits and the concert was a success. At the end of the 
spring semester the band went on tour with the Uni- 
versity Chorale. They toured through Alabama, Geor- 
gia, and Florida playing for various groups. 

This was a year for building the music program on 
campus next year they will come back stronger than ever.

Samford students were saddened at the loss of Michael Elder who would have 
been a senior this fall. A native of Scottsboro was eager to help people and 
went the extra mile. As a member of Phi Mu Alpha, Elder was an active 
student of the School of Music. He was to be the student assistant director this 
year for the University Chorale. His death came as a shock to his friends. 
Elder will be greatly missed. 




On September 18, Mark Jones died of an enlarged heart suddenly after 
football practice. Jones, a new Bulldog, was recruited as an offensive lineman 
by Coach Terry Bowden. The entire campus was deeply grieved by the 
untimely loss. 




In mid September, Rex Copeland was found in his north Shelby County 
apartment. Copeland died of multiple stab wounds to the chest and suffered 
at least two wounds to each arm. Copeland, a junior debator and member of 
Sigma Chi fraternity was a hard-working student who reportedly had no 
enemies. The Samford community was greatly saddened at the loss.

citement of moving boxes after boxes into the sweltering dorms, 
and meeting their roommates for the first time. 

In September, the freshman class decides on who will rep-

lead their class as President, Laura Wright as Vice-President, 
Gena Cochran as Secretary, and Karen Bauman as Treasurer.

Rising to the Occasion 

be a Sophomore is to be an "old hat" at college life. You can 
recognize a Sophomore almost instantly in the fall, because they are 
the students giving orders to the new Freshman. 

The Sophomore class was under the leadership of President — 
Scott McBrayer. Kim Huckabee served as Vice-President, Heather 
Meincke was Secretary and fason Pierce served as Treasurer. 

The class participated in Homecoming, Step Sing, Spring Fling, 
and class members were seen in almost every activity on campus. 

Their Step Sing theme was centered around the "Telephone. " The 
director of Step Sing was Kim Huckabee and the Choreographer 
was Deanna Plummer. The money that was not used for Step Sing 
was donated to Campus Ministries. 

The Sophomore student is slowly climbing the ladder of college 
years. Not on the bottom step, as the Freshman, but yet they have 
not reached the top step as the Senior. They are still hoping and 
striving to "Rise to the Occasion." Donna Ken

Almost To The Top 

Half finished with college, knowing the rest of their lives are 
just around the corner, the Junior Class did not hesitate to get 
involved and create more memories. Under the leadership of Rich 
Johnson, President, Justin Rudd, Vice-president, Janet Evens, 
Secretary and Richard Thompson, Treasurer, the juniors were a 
class to be proud of 

In October during Homecoming, Mary Prugh was Chairwoman 
of the Homecoming Committee. Several juniors were members of 
the committee and the week was a great success. Representing the 
junior class on the homecoming court were Justin Rudd and Mary 

October is also the month in which Campus Ministries or- 
ganizes the annual Fall Carnival. The junior class participated 
with the "Bounce the Ball" booth. 

In November, the annual Miss Samford Pageant was held under 
the leadership of chairwoman Beth Monroe. For the first time the 
junior class sponsored two young women. With elegance and 
grace, Jenice Johnston and Lisa Billingsley proudly represented 
the class in the competition. Jenice made the top ten and for her 
talent performed the dynamic song "Pour on the Power." 

During December, preparations were begun for Step Sing 1990. 
The Director for the junior class show was Julie Hayes, an early 
childhood education major. She along with Tracy Bachman and 
Melissa Bailey, choreographers, put together the junior class 
show called "The Rhythm is Gonna Get Ya," arranged by Joey 
Thoman. Thirty-five juniors participated in the show which 
placed second in the mixed division. 

Following Step Sing was Spring Break. Whether it was spent at 
the beaches or in a quiet get-away week at home with the family, 
the juniors definitely know how to have fun. Many went to Florida 
for a fabulous week in West Palm Beach, Daytona, Gulf Shores 
and Miami. Others went on mission trips either with youth groups 
from home or with the campus ministries' trip to New Orleans. It 
was clear from their stories that everyone had fun no matter where 
they were. 

During basketball season, the junior class showed tremendous 
spirit. In addition to sponsoring a game, the junior class par- 
ticipated in the spirit of other games and was therefore awarded 
$50 to be put in their account. Juniors Brad Waller, Christon 
Ray, Tracy Bachman and others led the group in several cheers to 
encourage team spirit. 

With the end of March came Samford's annual Spring Fling 
celebration. Under the leadership of Lauren Fields the committee 
organized many new ideas to make Spring Fling more of a college 
activity. Many juniors were involved and from the Band Bash to 
the Dating Game, Spring Fling was fun for the entire school. 

As summer swiftly approaches, many juniors are seeking those 
hard-to-find internships for needed experience to get ahead. Oth- 
ers are making preparations for summer missions and summer 
school. But whatever students do, they all know that next year will 
be their Senior year and for most their last chance to make college 
memories. It has been a great year for the class of '91 and next 
year will be even better because this class has the love to carry it

When the Class of 1990 set foot on campus in the Fall of 1986, the 
campus was overwhelmed by its presence. It was the largest en- 
tering freshman class to date. 

The class members continued to make themselves known by win- 
ning the Mixed Division in Step Sing their year. The next year, 
amongst all the trials of Step Sing revolving around the dancing 
issue, the class won the "Spirit of Step Sing" award. 

Continuing in this tradition, the Class of 1990 wished to leave a 
legacy at Samford, the kind of legacy the members had grown to 
appreciate. The class set a goal to contribute $50,000 to the 
Samford Annual Fund to be raised over the next five years. 

The class began to raise the money by sending pledge cards to 
seniors' mailboxes and asking them to pledge to contribute what 
they could over five years. Further contact was made in student 
organizations. These groups strived to have 100 percent of their 
seniors contribute to the fund. A one-night phone blitz was also 
held to contact seniors. 

The graduating class of 1990 left Samford not only contributing 
generously to the quality of academic programs, but also by setting 
ie pace for alumni involvement for years to come.

Who are those men with the SSC uniforms? Why that's Sam ford's 
first soccer club. According to one of the founders, Greg Henderson, 
"the club is the brain child of playing soccer in the quad last year. 
Then when September came, Phillip Moussakhani ana I started mak- 
ing contacts about starting a team. " 

After being turned down by the Athletic Department, the founders 
decided on another plan of attack. With the added support of Ken 
Riddle and Dave Ballenger, they took the request to the Student 

On November 10, 1989, the Samford Soccer Club received its official 
letter of club status. Along with this and financial support from the 
SGA seedling fund, the Samford Soccer Club was able to have try-outs. 
After a 14 game season, with a record of 10 wins, 3 losses, and one tie, 
the Club has high hopes for next season. Presently, the Club is playing 
with a semi-pro men's league, but next year Henderson hopes to 
schedule games with other universities like UAB and Troy State. 

"What we need to focus on is getting the ball rolling. We're getting 
our foot in the door with the Athletic Department. Once they see that 
the students will support a soccer team, they'll have to recognize the 

desires Of the Students. " Mary Eilhtr Norman

The refugees came by the tens of thousands, by train, by car, by taxi, and on foot. 
They waited in lines that were 3 miles long for 7 hours in a cold rain. No, these people 
were not waiting in line for tickets to the Rolling Stones concert. But this was the scene 
on November 10, 1989, after the borders that have separated West Germany and East 
Germany since May 26, 1952, were opened for the first time. After World War II, the 
Berlin Wall was constructed to separate a free Germany from a Communist Germany. 
Seventeen million East Germans have been bound by the Wall that has acted as a 
symbol of separation. With hammers, axes, and shovels, the citizens slowly chipped 
away the barrier. 

Less than six weeks earlier, an exodus of 200,000 East Germans along with an 
equally peaceful demonstration by hundreds of thousands more, brought this Stalinist 
government down. "There is no socialist German nation, there is no capitalist 
German nation, there is only one German nation," says Hans-Dietrich Genscher, West 
German Foreign Minister. For the West, the tearing down of the Berlin Wall makes 
the prospect of German reunification a reality. Mary Esther Norman

A New Tradition 

What's all that loud music and laughing coming from the co- 
op? The snack bar has changed. It's not just a snack bar anymore. 
Now it's Howards. But why Howards? Why not Ethels or Luthers? 
To the surprise of many students, Samford was previously known 
as Howard College. 

Along with the new name, Howards has also brought a new 
Thursday night activity that has proven to be a true winner. 
Each Thursday night about 8:00 the students begin to gather 
around candlelit tables awaiting the night's entertainment/ 
Roots Posse, Revolver, Jimmy and Lane, Foxy Fats and Compaiiy 
and Benzz are several of the area bands that have rocked the 
audience at Howards. 

Many students find Howards to be a great alternative to the 
local clubs or bars. To enhance its "club-like" atmosphere, fra- 
ternities and sororities take turns each week waiting the tables. 

Thanks to Howards, when asked the dreaded question, "What 
are you going to do tonight?" S.U. students can give an answer 
for at least one night of the week. "I'm going to Howards where 
the people are!"

One of the biggest issues this year on campus concerns Open 
Dorms. The Senate each fall selects days for our dorms to be 
"open" to both men and women. During the fall semester the 
students enjoy several days of open dorms. 

There are mixed feelings about this issue on campus. Most 
of the students are for the policy of open dorms, but most of the 
faculty and administration are having reservations about the 

Sophomore Cory Mock feels that high school seniors who are 
considering Samford as an option would be more apt to enroll 
if the dorm policy were different. It would be an added plus to 

Charissa Palmer, a freshman, believes "There are definitely 
convincing arguments on both sides. However, as long as 
visiting hours are met, obeyed, and enforced, open dorms 
would not be a disruption on Samford's campus." 

Many questions concerning the open-dorm policy are asked.

New and Improved 

The most griped and complained about part of a college campus 
is the food. Well, our campus is no different. But the cafe man- 
agement has tried to alleviate some of the criticism by using input 
cards. The cards have been very successful and the cafe's food has 
been better than ever. One of the better improvements is the pizza 
line. The cafe makes 1,100 pizzas a day for our students. They also 
have special days each month which include such things as bagel 
and cupcake bars and special nights which include luau and steak 
night. The food this year has been more enjoyable than ever before 
and a special thanks needs to be given to the cafeteria management 
for trying to make our meals more enjoyable even amidst students' 

Criticism. Donna Kern

A Welcome Change 

Three new additions have been constructed on our Campus. Tech- 
nically, they are called campus housing, but they are popularly 
known as sorority houses. 

The three sororities chosen to move into these houses are ZTA, XJ2, 
and AAII. 

The dorms are located on the hill behind the tennis courts. Con- 
struction began in January and will be completed in the fall. Each 
house will house approximately 80 girls. 

Each sorority contributed $50,000 to the construction of the houses. 
Samford will pay for the remaining amount. In turn, each resident 
will pay rent to the University. The cost will be only slighty higher 
than Beeson Woods. 

The new houses will contain the new security access system. This 
new card system will improve the security on campus and is a much 
more convenient, welcomed addition. Dana Mccitndon 


The Chapter room is not nearly complete but when finished it will I 
beautiful. The room is located on the ground level in each house.

Casuals It! 

The casual look was definitely a hit for the class attire. Students 
showed up in such things as ripped jeans, cut-offs, rugbys, bucks, 
duck boots, and braided leather belts. Anything J-Crew was cool 
and everyone wants to borrow your BAHA (you know that Mexican 
poncho.'). Girls opted for the natural look in make-up, often tying 
their hair up in a bandana. If you just didn't know what to wear — 
a sorority or fraternity shirt was always a safe bet. A couple of other 
miscellaneous hits include Anne Klein jewelry, flip flops, paisley 
and striped ties, and worry dolls. Let's not forget those vests-boys 
and girls alike-whether solid, striped or plaid. The vest was always 
a hit on campus. The jewelry was usually a black leather string 
with a silver or gold medallion. Whether class or evening attire the 
natural look was in coexistence with the progressive. HoprSumraii

After a week of long meetings, late night hours of cramming for tests and meeting other obligations, students 
are thankful when it's Friday. The weekend offers a time to relieve the week's stress and "get away" from the 
hustle and bustle of college life. 

One popular activity for the weekends is attending a midnight movie. Some people go to movies in large groups. 
Senior Darissa Brooks says she likes attending midnight movies because she is a night person, plus it's cheaper 
than going earlier. 

Listening to bands is also a popular activity. Junior Cyrethia Vines says she likes going to the Back Alley to eat 
and listen to the music. She also enjoys going to other universities' fraternity parties to hear the bands. Other 
popular places to hear entertainment are Louie Louie's, Touchdown's and The Comedy Club. 

One thing most students do not want to do on the weekends is be seen in the cafeteria on a Friday or Saturday 
night, a sure sign that you haven't got a date or any plans. Junior Jennifer Tindall says it's fun to get a group and 
go out to eat. Some popular restaurants are Fudd Ruckers, Bennigans, and Johnny Rays. Other students like to go 
just for dessert. Who could resist Grady's chocolate bar cake? 

When the Spring weather comes many students lay out in the sun on the weekends. Vail Beach, the roof of 
Crawford Johnson, and the pools of local motels are popular places to lay out. 

Some students choose to go to the beach, which is about four hours away, for the weekend. Junior Trade 
Thurston says she likes to get off campus for the weekend to experience another atmosphere. Other students travel 
to Atlanta or New Orleans. 

Weekends also allow for creativity as some students find nontraditional ways to have fun. Mike Pugh, Ken 
Riddle, Lisa Robertson, and Karen Matthews dressed as "alter egos" for a date. They dressed conservatively or 
rebelliously depending on their individual personalities. Mike said the night was fun because he changed his 
name, borrowed clothes, spikes his hair, and talked with an accent the whole date. 

Other students try non-traditional activites such as roller skating, playing skee-ball at Show Biz, having 
scavenger hunts, hiking to Pea Vine Falls at Oak Mountain, or playing on the Cahaba Heights Elementary School 
rope swings. 

Amist all these fun activites, Samford students find time for one essential weekend ingredient — sleep. Staying 
in bed until noon on Saturday is a perfect way to top off a busy week and a late Friday night.

A new idea 

based on a new idea 

A few years ago, we had a simple idea. 
Give staffs a better way to produce their 
yearbook copy. 

We introduced TypeVision software. 
We weren't really sure where it would 
lead but we had a hunch it would be big. 
Today, nearly 2,000 staffs send as their 
school year on disk. And they're having 
fun in the process. 

We thought about other possibilities. 
Finance. Indexing. Page design. And you 
know, the results surprised even us. Our 
Vision Series programs are unique They 
serve as a standard for what yearbook 
software can, and should be. 

Now, we have another idea. It's as 
simple as the first but offers even more 

What if you could do it all on the 
computer' Have total control and access 
to everything in your vcarb<x>k? What 
if you could see sour layouts, type, 
backgn Hinds, 

lines, and • . ^^^^^^^^^*""' 

other graphics 
combined and in place- 
on the screen? 

What if you could make changes 
quickly and at will 5 Or move items 
around in creative play 5 And what if you 
could see complete pages, exactly as they'll 

be printed, within a short time after 
sending them in? 

The possibilities are endless. Taylor's 
Vision Electronic Publishing System is 
about to revolutionize the way yearbooks 
are made. 

Make no mistake — this is not desktop 
publishing. Laser printers and desktop 
software don't begin to match the 
capability and creative control inherent 
with this system 

Your personal computer actually 
becomes an extension of a complex 
mainframe computer network. Only 
we keep the complexity to 
ourselves, and give you the 

<•" control. 

Everything you send us will be 
managed electronically. Even your 
pictures and artwork will be 
transformed into computer data. No 
cameras are involved, no manual work 
and most importantly no interpretation. 

The result? No surprises. Your pages 
lix)k the way you pictured them. Proofs 
come back quicker and all corrections are 
free. Free. 

Once you give the OK, this same 
system makes negatives and goes to press. 
Your yearbxxik takes shape electronically, 
flawless from your opening copy to the 
printing plate. 

This remarkable system is now being 
developed. In tact, much of it is currently 
on-line and the remainder will be 
installed in the near funire. We can hardly 

Now let's be honest. This system won't 
do everything for you. You still have to 
take a few pictures, write some nice copy 
and dream up a theme. But give us time. 
We're working on it. 

Taylor Publishing Company is 
proud to be the publisher of 
the 1990 Entre Nous.

Editor's Notes 

There are so many people that I would like to thank for helping me. 
The year progressively got worse, but we survived. There were or- 
ganizations that did not cooperate but, the others were very helpful 
and I would like to thank them. There are a couple of people that 
stand out when talking about deadlines and chaotic periods. Tracy 
Shepard was a support to me as she encouraged me at my worst 
moments, and she also wrote copy which made my job a little easier. 
Desi Havard, a former high school classmate now attending Auburn, 
helped me put the book totally together during the summer. She was 
God sent. I would also like to thank Mary Esther Norman she was a 
wonderful Assistant Editor. 

I would also like to thank Dr. Clemmensen for editing all the pages 
and looking at every proof. He encouraged me when I thought there 
was no room for encouragement. 

My parents I would like to thank for the support and understanding 
that they shared. During the summer I was back and forth between 
home and school and they never argued about my trips to SU. 

Next year will definitely be better. 

I thank God it's finally finished.

The Second world war interupted the daily activities 
of Howard, as a unit of Navy V-12 held a College 
Training Program on campus from 1943 -1945. 
Howard moved to its present location in September of 
1957. The first buildings constructed were the Li- 
brary, the Administraton building, C. J. Dorm, Vail 
Dorm, the University Center, and the Fine Arts Build- 
ing which today is the Biology Building and the 
Pharmacy School. The college continued to grow until 
1966 when Howard became Samford University. From 
then on the University has continued to grow with 
additions such as Beeson Woods, Smith, Pittman, the 
Chapel, the Concert Hall, the Music building, the 
Education building, the School of Nursing, and this 
year the new construction of the Sorority Houses. 

Stacey Newberry, Shannon Howell, Trade Thurston, Charissa 
Palmer, Christina Perry, Mary Prugh, and Susan Dean all 
agree that there are some weekends when you just can't study. 


And The Big 
Move Came 




Many issues have faced the students of Howard Col- 
lege and of Samford Univeristy. But the university has 
survived the controversy and the change. Throughout 
this year the campus has shown change in many 
places, faces and issues. The year as a whole was one 
that would remain in the memories of the students 
and faculty.
